We eat this all the time. Here is my tip, melt the butter in a sauce pan and then add the breadcrumbs. Stir for about one minute and then put onto the Salmon. This makes the topping crunchy and the butter is more evenly spread. Read More

I didn't care for this that much. My husband and I don't like fish much so maybe that's the problem. I used mahi mahi and low fat marg. Read More

Awesome! I used HoneyMustard because I was out of Dijon Mustard. Skipped the butter to save calories and baked. Everyone loved it. Wait till you taste it the day after when it's cold. Use leftovers in a salad! : ) Read More

Great! I like more mustard than calls for---enough to coat well. I use a sweet dijon or country style dijon mustard. Homemade bread crumbs the best--you can leave more coarse. Broil the top if you want the coating more crunchy or spray tops with a pump butter spray such as "Can't Believe it's Not Butter" type---coats better than drizzling melted butter and therefore browns better. My husband hates dijon mustard and still asks for this salmon dish. It is also wonderful cold the next day for a snack or on a nice salad! Thanks for sharing the recipe! It's a KEEPER! Read More

I thought salmon was dry and boring until I tried this recipe. It seemed a bit mushy after baking so I broiled the top for 2 minutes and then it was perfect! I will make this frequently and try the leftovers over salad as others have suggested. Read More

Wow! My first time cooking salmon, and it turned out amazing--my man was impressed. I made breadcrumbs from leftover italian bread, added some crushed slivered almonds to the top of the filets, drizzled some olive oil between them on the pan, cooked them in the oven for 13 minutes, then put them in the broiler for another 2 minutes--perfect!

Very tasty...the indgredients didn't overwhelm the salmon; it really let the flavors of the salmon come through. Salmon also was timed perfectly and came out nice and moist. I also used olive oil instead of butter and added a little fresh dill on top. Read More

For a serving for two I used two portioned salmon fillets a combo of whole grain and dijon mustard (about a tablespoon or two of each) salt and pepper and panko (Japanese) breadcrumbs instead of the Italian-style for extra crunch. Drizzled a little olive oil on top of the panko instead of the melted butter and baked. In my oven it only took 5-10 minutes on 400 and a few minutes under the broiler to make the top a little crispy and golden. Great recipe- I'll be making this again. Read More
